  • Incredibly beautiful way to spend the day. They offer an expansive campus with various themed gardens. Lush and tropical feeling. Most of the plants are labeled. We went on a day were it ended up raining and we left so we only saw a fraction of what they have there. I will definitely be going back so we can see more.
  • I have really enjoyed visiting this place over the years. We even tried to have a wedding reception here but they were book. The gardens are beautiful and buildings the same. They have concerts a few times a year in the evening where you being a picnic , wine and cheese and enjoy the outdoors and good music. It is centrally located within the city as well. If you haven't enjoyed Leu Gardens. Try it!
  • Absolutely beautiful botanical gardens that you must see if you are in the Orlando area! The variety of plant life is amazing and the gardens are very well kept. We visited in July (note that the Leu House Museum is closed in July for renovations, but the rest of the gardens are open) and we spent nearly two hours perusing the 50-acre gardens. Definitely worth a visit! Admission is usually free on the First Monday of the month - check the website to double check before you head out.
  • This place is Gorgeous!! My husband and I love coming here in the spring and just walking around for exercise. The bamboo garden is always impressive and the rose garden is breathtaking. My husband's favorite area is the dessert. The do jazz and movies in the grassy field.
  • This place is a hidden gem. I'm Annual pass holder and have been going since I was a little girl. I see couples every time I go. Great for a 1st date if you want to walk around, look at cool plants and talk. This place is a (large) oasis of nature right in the middle of a busy city.
